The cruise around the Islands of the Galapagos was great. It far exceeded expectations and we were very happy. It seems that all the cruise lines are under the fist of the Galapagos Islands and have some very stringent rules they must follow. Like, food from approved sources, staff must all be locals, Islands must be visited by select timetables, the Guides must be employed by the Galapagos Islands government. So bearing these contrictions in mind, only a few things can be improved on. The food was adequate and not up to normal cruise ship standards. The guides, although knowledgeable, if you get a not so good one, your stuck. On the Xpedition there were at least 6 guides and I would say that 2 were outstanding, 2 were good and 2 were not so good. The cruise director is a complete waste of time and I would bet that he did not know the names of as little as 2 passengers by the end of the voyage. More interested in surfing the web and checking people off the ship and back on. The tours were great and it is all you expect and more. The staff on board were fantastic, so attentive and helpful, the Maitre D, Fernando was the best I have ever seen. I would recommend this cruise to friends and would advise people to go now. The staterooms were roomy and good.
